Ever since I started colouring my hair at 15 I’ve been ‘all the colours under the rainbow’ and then some, and I can tell you I always have more fun as a blonde. Being blonde isn’t easy though…or cheap! Blondes need some extra care and attention, a little TLC if you like. Even though I was a hairdresser ‘way back in the day’ I would never ever colour my hair blonde myself because there’s just too much that can go wrong. I ‘throw gold’ like Robin Hood on crack and am prone to some nasty heat banding if the colour overlaps when applied…not pretty.
My hair is fine and thinning at the front, it’s also coarse thanks to chemo and menopause…yeah it’s not just your skin and vagina that dries up in menopause, your hair does too! Oh close your mouth ladies…you know it’s true.
Yesterday I caught up with my hairdresser Mladen from Eternal image at Henley Beach for a root touch up and trim and while I was in the chair I grilled the team for their top tips for caring for blonde hair. Here they are…
. Use a satin pillowcase ( great for your skin too)
.Use heat protecting products especially when using hair straighteners, including a quality hairdryer.
.Book in for regular trims.
.Use a quality colour protectant shampoo.
. Use products with ‘anti fade’ qualities.
.Treat yourself to a monthly ‘in salon’ treatment.
There you have it, do you have any favorite tips to add?
Have you been blonde and did you have more fun?
